Anderson to Race in Final at USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships




June 25, 2010

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Washington State's Jeshua Anderson qualified out of the men's 400m hurdles semifinals and former Cougar distance great Bernard Lagat won the 5000m Friday at the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships being held at Drake Stadium in Des Moines.

Anderson, a junior from Woodland Hills, Calif., finished second in the second heat with a time of 49.96 seconds which was the fourth-best time in the two heats. Bershawn Jackson (Nike) won the first semifinal with a time of 48.36 and Johnny Dutch (South Carolina) won the second semifinal heat in a time of 49.69. Justin Gaymon (Nike) finished second in the first heat with the third-best time of the night of 49.36. The men's 400m hurdles final will take place Saturday at 12:18 p.m. PT. NBC's live coverage begins at noon PT Saturday.

Among a heat level not conducive to long distance running, Cougar Hall of Famer Bernard Lagat took the lead two-thirds of way into the men's 5000m race and held on to win in a time of 13:54.08. Running for Nike, the 35-year-old Lagat held off Tim Nelson (Oregon Track Club/Nike) who finished second in a time of 13:54.80. Three weeks ago, Lagat broke the American 5000m record with his time of 12:54.12 in Norway.

Another Cougar former All-American, Ian Waltz finished sixth in the men's discus final, throwing 191-1 (58.25m). This was a busy week for Waltz and his wife, former World and American pole vault record-holder, Stacy Dragila, as they celebrated the birth of their first child, a daughter. Drew Ulrick threw the discus a distance of 176-4 (53.76m) for 15th place.

Shaquana Logan (freshman, Tacoma) finished 10th in the junior women's 400m hurdles first round, running a time of 1-minute, .95 seconds. The top eight runners advanced to the finals.
